Hi there! 👋
I'm Garrett Green.

Full Stack Software Engineer 👨‍💻
JavaScript Developer

About Me

Prior to pivoting my career towards software engineering, I worked at a major advertising agency and launched a freelance writing career. After working with Fortune-100 brands at VaynerMedia, serving as Gary Vaynerchuk’s assistant, and writing for UPROXX Media I longed for a more challenging career that would allow me to grow and evolve as a creative professional.

After some introductory, online JavaScript classes I was hooked; I knew software engineering was the career path for me. In September 2018, I enrolled in Fullstack Academy’s full-time Software Engineering Immersive program. Upon graduating from Fullstack in December 2018, I was offered a Teaching Fellowship role to help the next cohort of students in their journey to software engineering.

Now, with my education and teaching experiences from Fullstack Academy, I am looking for an opportunity to grow as a developer while utilizing my professional experience of working in a team environment.
